Billy Porter put a fashionable flair on sharp suiting to celebrate Carol Burnett’s upcoming 90th birthday. The Tony Award-winning actor joined the “Carol Burnett: 90 Years of Laughter + Love” tribute show in Los Angeles last night. The special was taped this Thursday at the Avalon Hollywood and will stream on April 26 on NBC, honoring Burnett’s groundbreaking career.
Porter appeared on the red carpet in a floral cream suit by Thom Browne. His ensemble included a blazer jacket and matching pleated flare-leg trousers. Both pieces were adorned with floral embroidery throughout.
The “Pose” star complemented the look with a white button-down shirt, which kept slightly undone to show off his layered pearl necklaces. Taking things up a notch, Porter added a wide-brimmed light-pink hat.
Giving his wardrobe a slick boost, the singer slipped into a pair of curved brogue heels, also by Browne. The silhouette peeked out underneath his pants leg and included a sharp, triangular pointed-toe and a stacked heel. The shoes featured 4-inch curved heels.
Porter’s essential clothing style consists of effervescent patterns, printed muumuus and ruffled separates. He is known to blur lines and promote a more gender-fluid aesthetic. The “Cinderella” star often creates fashion moments that generate new discussions about gender as it relates to fashion. Throughout his career, Porter has donned avant-garde looks from brands like The Blonds, Christian Siriano and Sarah Sokol.
